A cervical stress test is performed by either applying transfundal pressure while scanning transvaginally or examining the patient during a Valsalva maneuver or coughing or while standing [28,29]. Transfundal pressure is considered the most effective stress technique in eliciting cervical changes during the active assessment of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria ® 4 Assessment of Gravid Cervix cervix. It is defined as applying moderate pressure on the maternal abdomen (...) at the internal cervical os may be added. In a postcerclage patient it is often helpful to describe the CL in relationship to the cerclage sutures. Transvaginal Ultrasound with a Cervical Stress Test If the cervix remains normal in appearance, a “cervical stress test” can be applied to elicit a dynamic cervix. It is recommended that this maneuver only be carried out in locations with provisions for labor and delivery. If the cervix is already dilated, shortened, or dynamic in appearance, a cervical stress

187. Structural changes in puborectalis muscle after vaginal delivery. (PubMed)

Structural changes in puborectalis muscle after vaginal delivery. To evaluate the structural composition of the puborectalis muscle before and at several timepoints after first vaginal delivery, by the use of echogenicity and area measurements, in order to explore its recovery.Twenty nulliparous women with a singleton pregnancy underwent 3D/4D transperineal ultrasound assessments at rest, on pelvic floor muscle contraction and on Valsalva maneuver at 12 weeks' gestation and at 1 day and 1, 2, 3 (...)  weeks after delivery. Although not statistically significant, a decrease in MEP was observed between 3 and 4 weeks after delivery for all maneuvers. PMA at rest and on Valsalva maneuver remained constant after delivery.When compared with measurements taken during pregnancy, a sharp decrease in MEP was observed soon after vaginal delivery, which was most likely caused by stretch trauma to the puborectalis muscle and subsequent formation of (micro) hematoma and edema. Subsequent increases in MEP may

After training, the LF/HF ratio, which summarizes the sympatho-vagal balance in HRV control, was similarly decreased in the AER and RES groups. After AER, b2 and b4 significantly improved. After RES, changes of b2 were of borderline significance, whereas changes of b4 did

Effects of core strength training on core stability [Purpose] To investigate the effects of core strength training on core stability with and without the Valsalva maneuver. [Participants and Methods] Twenty-four students were randomly assigned to the training and control groups. Students in the training group undertook a 4-week training program that included exercises for the transverse abdominis, multifidus, diaphragm, and pelvic floor muscles, whereas students in the control group performed (...) their usual activities. Participants were required to perform four types of task with and without the Valsalva maneuver. Seated stabilometry was assessed according to the center of pressure (COP). [Results] In the training group, the rectus area in the quiet sitting position with the Valsalva maneuver was enlarged and the length of trajectory during a sudden perturbation task was decreased. No significant changes to the COP were seen in the control group. [Conclusion] Some parameters of core stability

, repeated at three time points before and after the catheterization procedure. The Indicor indirectly measures LVEDP by calculating a value from finger photoplethysmography (PPG) waveforms that will be recorded while the patient performs a Valsalva maneuver. Participants baseline characteristics will be gathered from the electronic medical record, including history of coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, or lung disease; list of blood pressure medications; serum markers (...) of kidney function; and echocardiogram measurements including ejection fraction. These parameters will be used to assess relevance to the calculation of LVEDP by Indicor. The first Indicor measure will be conducted before the catheterization procedure. PPG probes will be attached to participants' first or second finger. Participants will be asked to strain as if having a bowel movement (Valsalva maneuver) for 10 seconds.

196. Subarachnoid hemorrhage after transient global amnesia caused by cerebral venous congestion: case report. (PubMed)

Subarachnoid hemorrhage after transient global amnesia caused by cerebral venous congestion: case report. Transient global amnesia is reported to be caused by cerebral venous congestion. Internal jugular venous flow reversal in particular with the Valsalva maneuver leads to cerebral venous congestion. In addition, Valsalva maneuver can also induce subarachnoid hemorrhage. Transient global amnesia and subarachnoid hemorrhage might have common a pathophysiology in cerebral venous congestion.We (...) report here the case of a 57-year-old woman who twice experienced convexal subarachnoid hemorrhage just after straining at stool following an episode of transient global amnesia. Digital subtraction angiography showed left temporal congestion. Left jugular vein ultrasonography revealed reflux with the Valsalva maneuver only in acute phase, indicating transient cerebral venous congestion.Subarachnoid hemorrhage followed by transient global amnesia indicates a common factor between them.

Assessment of fluid responsiveness in spontaneously breathing patients: a systematic review of literature. Patients who increase stoke volume or cardiac index more than 10 or 15% after a fluid challenge are usually considered fluid responders. Assessment of fluid responsiveness prior to volume expansion is critical to avoid fluid overload, which has been associated with poor outcomes. Maneuvers to assess fluid responsiveness are well established in mechanically ventilated patients; however, few (...) studies evaluated maneuvers to predict fluid responsiveness in spontaneously breathing patients. Our objective was to perform a systematic review of literature addressing the available methods to assess fluid responsiveness in spontaneously breathing patients.
